John organised an Autumn Break last weekend as the children were off school. We stayed in a village called Tannadice which is north of Dundee about a 30 minute drive in farmland.
We stayed in a holiday let large house called Mill Cottage. Although located near a burn (small river) flowing into the River Esk (pictured) I could not find the actual mill nor any evidence of a millstone.

The waterfront. Mairi with Harriet (5 yrs) and Ellie (3.5 yrs)
Ishie (11.80 yrs) drawing at a desk at one of the 'hands on' displays in the large open public area. The museum is about Design so we enjoyed looking at the exhibits and talking to some Design students about what is going on. It needs another trip to spend time in the room exhibits e.g. story of Cunard ships.
And who is this handsome fellow?! Alastair, nearly 11 years old, was trying on the dress-up clothes at the (excellent) Jute Museum.
On the way home we visited our old neighbour Dot in Perth. She just had her 88th birthday. Dot still has lots of flowers (but no gnomes I noticed!). She and Ishie in her new M&S dress that Mairi bought her posed for a photo on the back doorstep.
